Rumors hit the Internet on Friday that Hugh Hefner may have died.
Law enforcement made their way to the Playboy mansion to find that Hef is still alive — despite being ill.
Several news agencies, including TMZ, got a tip the Playboy king had passed away. We called law enforcement to confirm or shoot down the story … and we were told they were unaware of a death at the Mansion.
We’ve learned earlier today, cops went to the bunny house and spoke with staff members who said Hef’s health remained unchanged. A staff member told Hef the police had come to check on him and he then personally called cops to say he was okay.
Hef tweeted earlier in the evening to let everyone know he’s fine.
